$$$ At a recent red carpet event in midtown Manhattan, a Sundance Film Festival star makes her grand entrance. The throng of photographers and journalists gasp and drop to their knees, while spectators push and shove each other out of the way to get a peek. Lil BUB has arrived at the party for Animal Planet’s “Puppy Bowl.” The adorable, 4-pound, brown cat with the big green eyes and permanently drooping tongue is a certifiable star. BUB went viral when her owner, Mike Bridavsky, uploaded photos of his pet on his blog. The popularity of those pictures and videos led to a documentary, “Lil Bub & Friendz,” which won The Tribeca Online Festival as Best Feature Film last year. [NYP]
